I am ready for a holiday. Life is so hectic right now.
 I have been working hard, sleeping little, and cant wait to get away from it all next week!
( these photos aren't edited by the way- the e-pl1 has a really cool art filter I thought i should try out.)

( wearing- zara pin stud boots, leather stud bag and long angora cardigan, topshop leather leggings & fur collar, asos silver cross ring.)


you belong to me.

A few of the things that I love.
I see them everyday and they make me smile.

Crown key- a gift from my mum on a visit to Brugges where the shop owner told her she had chosen the 'Key to Paradise' . 
Some of my fashion, design, style, inspiration and travel books.
Part of one of my wallpaper design projects at university.
My stone skull. I love the way the intricate pattern makes the skull even more beautiful.
My new Macbook Pro and writing this blog.
This recently purchased silver cross ring.



silver sands.

Almost head to toe in navy blue. One of my absolute favourite shades, and the reason why around a year ago I knew the navy A.Wang bag had been planted just for me.
I also made a point of wearing my silver cuffs- purchased way back in the autumn, deserving some blog spotlight. 
Another note- i am still crazy for the fit of Topshops Jamie super skinny jeans, now all I have to do is select another colour- i'm fancying the 70's blue shade but any ideas welcome? 


what makes me tick. January.

Each month I have decided to create a ' What makes me tick ' post, 
where I will share my current crushes.

Oversized clutches.
Orange & pink & THOSE nude glasses.
Breathtaking watercolour skies I am forever running out of the house to capture.
Ashley olsen a change from Mary Kate my usual favourite twin.
Jil Sander s/s 2011.
Block heels in bright shades.
Sweet words.
Elin Kling x H&M.
 Asymmetric shoes.
Sea & her dreamy blog- lights drive my soul.
Lunchtime collages.
True words and thankyou notes on thxthxthx blog.
boyish cuts.

what are your January loves?



Looking for an excuse to try out my new glasses. After falling for the Cacharel s/s 2011 beauties, I got way too excited upon finding this asos pair. Similar shade frames and shape minus the yellow tinted lenses. 
Looking forward to wearing them with bright pink lips and simple white everything.
Hope you have all had a fun weekend? Katie.X

( wearing = leather boots, dress and glasses - asos, suede jacket h&m, scarf Zara, bag Alexander Wang)


colour blocked collections s/s 2011 pt2.

The second installment of the Colour Blocked Collections Posts.
A more subtle palette of classic tones when worn together, also the perfect base for an
 insertion of colour seen in the first catwalk collage post here.
I am so inspired with an overdose of beautiful clothes for this spring/summer.
What are your favourite looks / colours?

The full outfit following Wednesday's preview. It was as bitterly cold, and windy as it looks. 
I also realised my aviator jacket, and these boots were feeling a little neglected.
New camera =  inspiration levels have soared, now my photos bear much more resemblance to reality. Katie.xx
